Anyone else present in the Big House for all 10? My favorite has to be the AC touchdown in 1979 because it happened right in front of us in section 4.
|2 weeks 1 day ago||Section 4||
The scouts were sitting on the steps in Section 4. Seemed to be having a great time.

Is that the same as knowing there are unknowns?

The rich get richer and the hell wth the rest of you.
|19 weeks 15 hours ago||Turn 2 Foundation||
I was disappointed that no one mentioned Derek's Turn 2 Foundation and all the great work it does with kids. Far too few superstars give back to their communities like Jeter has. He will retire but the foundation he created will continue to make this world a little better place to live.

“As Mankind becomes more liberal, they will be more apt to allow that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the community are equally entitled to the protections of civil government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations of justice and liberality”

Sporting the block M in my travels all over the world and being greeted with "Go Blue!" everywhere I go.
|25 weeks 14 hours ago||1969 OSU||
It's the one that has made me renew my season tickets ever since.
|33 weeks 1 day ago||Cap of 50!||
Individuals could purchase up to 50 tickets and the promo code was apparently widely available and would work for anyone. It's already a near sellout.
|36 weeks 2 days ago||I take exception||
This "older alum" would enjoy a few Two Hearted's rather than wine with my hot dogs at the game and as for enthusiasm we're in the stadium for the warmups and always stay until the end--win or lose. How many students can make that claim?

Raoul Wallenberg without question.

Anyone remember Doc Losh? Grading scale: A for athlete, B for boy and C for coed.
|44 weeks 6 days ago||You must be old! I've had||
You must be old! I've had season football tickets since my freshman year in 1964 and have only missed a handfull of games in that span.
|44 weeks 6 days ago||Yost||
1. Attending a hockey game at Yost and remembering watching Cazzie and company play basketball under that same roof.
2. Attending a hockey game at Yost and joining in the chants.

If they don't pour Two-Hearted find another restauant.
|48 weeks 6 days ago||Much Overdue||
We've come a long way since the Michigan Marching Band first admitted women in 1972! It was about that same time that we had our first women cheerleaders as well.
|51 weeks 6 days ago||Deja Vu?||
I'm feeling exactly like I did before attending the 1969 game.
|52 weeks 13 hours ago||Perspective, Please||
As a season ticket holder since my freshman year in 1964 it seems to me that too many people are taking the whole sports culture far too seriously.
As we go around the table on Thanksgiving has anyone ever heard another say "I'm thankful that Michigan won __ games this year and is probably going to the ____ Bowl?" I didn't think so.
In 1969 after that huge win over Ohio Bo suffered a heart attack on the eve of the Rose Bowl. No true Michigan fan really cared whether we won or lost that game against USC--our thoughts and prayers were with Coach and his family.
Let's focus on those things that are truly important this week. You'd be surprised how much that lowers your stress level.
|1 year 12 hours ago||1973||
1973 says it all. I had to watch them tear down the banner.
|1 year 1 day ago||Exponentially||
Since 1964? You bet.
|1 year 2 weeks ago||Will Probably Renew||
My audiologist has three kids in college and hopes I renew my season tickets.
|1 year 3 weeks ago||Those were the days||
1:00 kickoffs, TV time outs only at a couple of games a year--and an offensive line made up mostly of 5th year seniors.
|1 year 6 weeks ago||Season Ticket Holder Since 1964||
The '69 game against Ohio remains among my top 5 victories and I'll be there again for IU on Saturday. Age might not bring wisdom but it does offer perspective. I've learned to acccept the good with the bad and not fret too much about those things which I can't control--like who's coaching the team and the play calling. Enjoy it for what it is and try not to internalize sports.
Life is simpler that way.

They should be honored that we consider them members in good standing of the Irish Society of Poultry Fanciers. They have a noble Mission Statement:
"The object of the Irish Society of Poultry Fanciers is to encourage and promote the preservation, improvement and protection of all breeds of poultry and waterfowl in keeping with breed standards, through advice and education in the use of good genuine poultry practices and disease control."
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Drum Cadence||
It's an amplified live drum cadence right up until the snap and I found it very annoying after a while. They even did it when we had the ball. I'm surprised it's allowed after a team breaks the huddle. "Adds excitement" I guess. If it didn't rattle CMU it sure isn't going to affect ND.
I miss the old days when the crowd noise forced Ohio to take repeated time outs!
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Actually, No||
Alumni not only paid full price (in addition to their "donation") but were there to watch the students arrive and wonder why so many of them were leaving early.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||Ouch!||
Apologies if this has already been noted, but I just read that CMU's big tailback (and best offensive player) broke his ankle on the 3rd down play after Gardner's early interception at the 6 and their starting QB broke his collarbone shortly thereafter in the 1st Q.
Big price to pay for a big paycheck.
|1 year 13 weeks ago||Just call me old||
Been a football season ticket holder since my freshman year in 1964. Do the math.
|1 year 17 weeks ago||Finally!||
A post on this board about something older than me!
|1 year 18 weeks ago||One Small Correction||
As one who watched all of his home games from Section 4 (think Indiana 1979--catch was right in front of us) I can tell you that the crowd's "anticipative stirring" didn't just begin when AC touched the ball--it began as soon as he lined up wide on offense or waited for the punt or kickoff to fall into his waiting arms. You just knew every time that you were probably going to see something special.
